Hiking Harold

Hubby and I have been trying to get out and about to do more hiking and get more exercise. We both need to lose weight and I need to lower my cholesterol. Last Sunday and this Sunday were gorgeous days to be outside. This Sunday Hubby and I went to Harold Parker State Forest. We had downloaded a trail map from the computer but that didn't help much. Most of the time we didn't know where we were. (and the trail of breadcrumbs just wasn't working!)
However, our view for most of the day looked like this so we really didn't care:
We spent a good hour and a half hiking around in the woods and really enjoying it. This lake made us remember how much we want a canoe though. Anyone have a canoe for sale? Just a small one.....maybe 12 feet? We have no place to keep it since we live in a condo but we'd figure something out
Stupidly......we went and got an ice cream cone after the walk. Kind of defeated the purpose but I figure it would be worse if we'd sat around on our arses all day and then went and got a cone! I did get frozen yogurt......which counts for something, right? Even if it's Moose Tracks???
Unfortunately today looks like this outside:

That means we won't be doing our promised after-dinner walk. We want to try to walk every night but this makes me just want to put my jammies on and curl up on the couch.

AND......Opening Day for the Red Sox was cancelled!!! ohhhhhh....that just makes it seem like it's not really spring yet. Hopefully they will get the game in tomorrow.

What a lovely walking area! I need to find somewhere nice and walk myself. I know it would make me feel and sleep better.

But also I love love love rain! we don't get enough here, so I get that you'd be sick of it. But next time it rains remember that SOMEONE out there would be ecstatic !! (because SOMEone out there LOVES drinking hot mochas in bed!)
